Benjamin sent in his massive IKEA BILLY project – a BILLY library to be exact. He wanted “a large bookcase in the style of a small library.” And he got exactly what he envisioned.
The library spans across a doorway and so classy when lit.
If you’re planning on your own BILLY project, the bridge is probably the part to pay most attention to. It’s formed from 2 rows of BILLY height extension units and Benjamin took extra steps to make sure everything holds up.

The middle row of BILLY bookcases were cut down to fit a media center.
IKEA items used:
- IKEA BILLY bookcase 40 x 28 x 202 cm
- BILLY Height Extension units
- OXBERG glass doors
Other materials and tools:
- Light installation
- Top sides
- Stucco profiles
- Electric drill
- Tool kits
The steps are too numerous to list on this post. Take a look at the video below for an overview of the build.
A short video on the light effects. Beautiful!
